More than 20,000 students from schools in the Region of Murcia will enjoy new shadow spaces in their school centres. The Forestry Plan initiative will involve the planting of 2,000 new trees distributed in a hundred schools of Murcia.
This plan promotes the involvement of citizens in the care of the environment, promoting it from the classroom and raising awareness among younger citizens. In fact, new trees have already been planted in some of the educational centres of Murcia thanks to this initiative.
Likewise, among the proposals of the Forest Plan, there is also a doubling of the number of trees in the municipality, from 100,000 to 200,000 specimens in the next ten years. In addition to planting trees in schools, trees will also be planted along the banks of the Segura River, on the Vía Verde del Noroeste, in parks, in roundabouts and in senior centres, among other strategic points. On the other hand, reforestation in rural, mountain and field spaces have also been proposed.
